Episode 139: Monica Swanson – Character, Connection, and Faith

Monica Swanson is the mom of four boys. She is the author of the books Boy Mom and Raising Amazing.

In this episode, we talk a lot about character and what it means to raise our kids in a way that they learn about what is character and how to have good character. We talk about how she has raised her kids to love God, like their family, and do the dishes without asking.
